Sweet build and frame! I love that generation of record parts.

What a stunner Hilltopperny!!

Nice execution on the build too! Campy bikes always get high votes from me!

Looking forward to hearing how she rides.

Thanks folks! It is 7 degrees Fahrenheit today and all I can do is think about riding this one!

I am going to set up the smart trainer today, throw the CSI on it and see if that can at least take my mind off of it for a bit.

I'd be out on it regardless of temperature, but too much ice and snow up here right now. I'm sure the first chance I get I'll be out on the road for at least a shakedown ride!

Wow well done! So clean and classic. Hope my build comes out looking half as good as this one. Love it!

Enjoy those smooth miles.

Thanks and I agree. I doubt that road bikes really get any better.

I've looked at this a dozen times. Such a classy bike. I wouldn't change a thing.
I'd love to have a Kirk built for me someday.

I'm with Jimbo on this. I keep coming back to this post. White lugged Kirk terraplane. Just awesome, and just my size. Looking forward to a ride report and some more pictures on the road. Enjoy the heck out of that!
